  • When this app is opened, a robotic voice will give you very clear instructions how the game works. You’ll have to walk to the center of an open field and virtual targets will be randomly placed around you. Make sure the GPS on your smartphone is active. Swipe left to send out a tone and you’ll here a beep from the nearest target. Listen with headphones to find direction to the targets. Because it uses with GPS the app works at it’s best if you keep moving. Your phone doesn’t know where you looking at if you stand still. Tweet your best time after finding all six targets.
    This app is easily accessible for visually impaired, there are no buttons to press, you only have to swipe up, down or left. You can also play this game if you have good vision. It actually becomes easier because you can see the dots (targets) and the route you’ve walked on the screen of your phone.
